that the president could take through executive action to by pass powerful opposition in congress. and dan lothian joins us live at the white house. so, dan, if you could just layout the difference between what the president can do using executive action versus using administrative action. >> and the president and vice president have talked about things they can do legislatively. but if they can't do it that way, they can move things a lot qui quick are by ter by the preside acting on his own. a ban on high capacity clips. universal back grounground chec. tightening up checks on background checks. also discussing issues around mental health. those are some of the things that are part of the package that the president is currently looking at. but again, the president also has talked about using executive orders to move things along very quickly. and that is sort of shaping up to be somewhat of a more murky issue. one thing we expect is that the president wants to enforce existing laws. so laws that are already on the books, use executive orders to enforce them. another thing that the president poin

it a terrorist attack as well. for more, let's go to dan rivers in london. what are the latest reports there on the hostage situation? >> effectively, according to the minister of information in algeria, this is a standoff. the algerian security forces surrounded this gas plant in the far east of algeria. the islamists are holed up inside, holding a number of western hostages. we don't know the exact numbers. there's been a press conference this morning from the norwegian stat oil company. it is saying that it had 17 employees there, 5 escaped. and therefore 12 remain unaccounted for. not clear if all are being held hostage or if some escaped into the desert. it's a confused situation. the state department confirmed there are americans among those being held. we understand as well possibly british, japanese, french as well as those norwegians. a number of countries being embroiled in this hostage crisis which looks like it may have been precipitated by algeria's decision to allow french planes to fly of the country as part of its ongoing military campaign in mali to the south. >> i kno
